    Pros

    Employee discount on clothes

    Cons

    Management was a revolving door. I had three to four different managers while only working there for two years. A lot of my other co workers just stopped showing up for shifts so we were always under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on the well being of your associates , Don't take your title to heart, (was promised my own store) could get ripped from you asap. Was loyal to the company . went from top volume, got transferred because someone didn't like me so then; worked at a closing store options weren't discussed till 5-8 weeks before closure ; then left because I figured out my worth.. Love and miss pac but On to better things

    Pros

    Employee discounts. That's about it.

    Cons

    They never gave you hours, very unprofessional, and they didn't train you. You showed up on your first day and they acted surprised that you didn't know how to do everything already. Frightening.
